Once, coming around a bend, he shied abruptly, like a startled horse, curved away from the place where he had been walking, and retreated several paces back along the trail. The creek he knew was frozen clear to the bottom—no creek could contain water in that arctic winter—but he knew also that there were springs that bubbled out from the hillsides and ran along under the snow and on top the ice of the creek.
Some people think that healthy snacks lack flavor, but that is not true. Popcorn, which was first enjoyed by the people of Peru over five thousand years ago, is not only healthy but also quite delicious. The high rate of popcorn consumption among Americans supports this claim. Because popcorn is relatively high in nutritional value, is fairly inexpensive, and lends itself to a variety of cooking methods, it is one of the most popular American snack foods.
Which sentence is the thesis in this paragraph?
This nation has placed its destiny in the hands and heads and hearts of its millions of free men and women; and its faith in freedom under the guidance of God. Freedom means the supremacy of human rights everywhere. Our support goes to those who struggle to gain those rights or keep them.
Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.
Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.
Which idea is expressed in both excerpts?
It made quick efforts to lick the ice off its legs, then dropped down in the snow and began to bite out the ice that had formed between the toes. This was a matter of instinct. To permit the ice to remain would mean sore feet. It did not know this. It merely obeyed the mysterious prompting that arose from the deep crypts of its being. But the man knew, having achieved a judgment on the subject, and he removed the mitten from his right hand and helped tear out the ice particles.

No person should try, or be allowed, to get rich out of this program; and the principle of tax payments in accordance with ability to pay should be constantly before our eyes to guide our legislation.

Earth Day will be celebrated in over one hundred countries across the world next week. Students of Pine Grove High can show their compassion for the Earth by leaving cars at home and electronics unplugged for the day. Even small gestures can make a big difference! The attendance boundaries for our school span a fifteen-mile radius, but designated drop zones have been established for Earth Day.

For the American people can no more meet the demands of today’s world by acting alone than American soldiers could have met the forces of fascism or communism with muskets and militias. No single person can train all the math and science teachers we’ll need to equip our children for the future, or build the roads and networks and research labs that will bring new jobs and businesses to our shores. Now, more than ever, we must do these things together, as one nation and one people.
How is President Obama using an appeal to reason, or logos, in this excerpt?
We know that America thrives when every person can find independence and pride in their work; when the wages of honest labor liberate families from the brink of hardship. We are true to our creed when a little girl born into the bleakest poverty knows that she has the same chance to succeed as anybody else, because she is an American; she is free, and she is equal.
Read the excerpt from President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s “New Deal” speech from 1932.
What do the people of America want more than anything else? To my mind, they want two things: work, with all the moral and spiritual values that go with it; and with work, a reasonable measure of security–security for themselves and for their wives and children. Work and security–these are more than words. They are more than facts. They are the spiritual values.

Kim turned away. She’d been complaining all day about this Young Naturalist hike Latoya had talked her into, moaning about bug bites and stale granola bars.
What does this excerpt tell the reader about Kim?
“I didn’t mean that,” Latoya said, her voice softer. “They warned us about this, you know; people getting short-tempered when they’re frightened. Look, I’m going to find us an overhang, I’ll whistle when I find one. Put the berries in the empty bag from the granola bars.” She glanced at the sky again. “And hurry. We don’t have long before the rain gets bad.”
How do the setting details advance the plot at this point in the story?
“It doesn’t go any louder,” Latoya said. “Face it, the others are too far away to hear us. And we don’t have time to stand around blowing whistles.” She glanced around the darkening forest. “We have to make our preparations before it rains. And while there’s still a little daylight.”
What does this dialogue reveal about Latoya?
